Composed as a quartet of spellbinding stories, the film begins with a pastoral idyll about the magical and moonstruck existence of a young widow and her son. A pair of embroidered shoes sends the mother into a flight of fancy and delirium; but years later; a trip to her island hideaway reveals something of her past ... The second story, both hilarious and poignant, is set in a college campus at the dawn of the Cultural Revolution. It focuses on the desires between two Indonesian Chinese returnees and a voluptuous female doctor. A scandal revolving a 'bum-pinching molester' paradoxically binds and severs their ties. The third story, the protagonist of the previous story is sent down to the village where the mad widow and her now grown-up son live. A riveting tale unfolds, about male egos and female bellies, and how caressing velvet can save or ruin lives. The last story journeys back in time to the windswept Gobi Desert, home of nomadic Uyghur."--Container

"To eliminate the increasing disruption to social order by triad society order members, Superintendent Wai was put in charge of the operation "Wo Hu", whereby over 1000 undercover cops were sent to collect evidence against triad societies, among which the most powerful was the MOB. Chun was the first member to fall victim to the operation. With the help of Killer, Jim's foot soldier, who murdered the undercover cop responsible for Chuen's arrest, Chuen declined to be witness for the persecution. Superintendent Wai's plan then failed. When the undercover cops collected evidence against Tommy's illegal drug business, Tommy was forced to leave Hong Kong by Jim. Boss, who was the de facto head of the MOB, realized that Jim was getting more and more popular in the MOB, and decided to eliminate Jim. The killing job was delegated to Killer who was unaware that Jim was the victim. Walter's young son, Dee, accidentally bumped into Tommy, who was supposed to have taken refuge outside Hong Kong.
